I applied for my loan a few months ago and have received my tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan but I have not received a maintanance grant. I am planning on getting a job while at uni but even with this it will leave me with nothing to live off of. Is there any way you can help?

The maintenance grant is not available to all new students applying for the first time in 2016/2017 and they will instead be able to receive a higher rate of maintenance loan. But continuing students applying for support in 2016/2017 would be able to apply for a maintenance grant and the amount they could be entitled to depends on the household income.
If you are a continuing student and have provided information of the household income this may be awaiting to be assessed or if the household income is over the threshold you may not be eligible to receive a maintenance grant but may receive a higher amount of loan. As we do not have access to your account we would ask for you to contact us on 0300 100 0607 to be provided with a more specific answer to you situation. thanks

The maintenance grant is only available to students who are returning students in 2016/17. If you are a new student in the upcoming academic year, you won't receive any maintenance grant.
If however, you are a continuing student in this academic year, or you have applied for different season start in the 2015/16 academic year, please contact us on 0300 100 0607 so that we can review your application with you.
